Sandisk Extreme Pro 64GB CF Card

Now that you can buy an APS-C camera with an 18MP resolution for a few hundred pounds, many full frame DSLRs offer over 20MP and some medium format cameras are resolving as much as 60MP, there’s a real need for large capacity media. Add into the mix high Megapixel RAW burst modes and the advent of DSLR video and there’s an equal need for speed. Sandisk soundly answer both of these needs with its Extreme Pro series which are available in capacities of 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. Continue reading “Sandisk Extreme Pro 64GB CF Card”

SanDisk Extreme IV 4GB Compact Flash Card

When I reviewed SanDisk’s 2 GB Extreme III card, a couple of years ago, I reached the conclusion that (with a 12bit 10MP DSLR) it was blazingly fast, if a little small storage wise.

SanDisk Cruzer Contour 16Gb

A few years ago, if a girl had asked me “Is that a 16GB hard drive in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me,” I would have taken it as a compliment. Nowadays I’d take it as an insult. That’s progress for you, or miniaturisation at any rate, as elegantly demonstrated by the SanDisk Cruzer Contour 16Gb, which has been in my pocket for the past few months.

The End of The War?

LG Electronics Super Multi Blue GGW-H10N previewed in The Technofile by MC Rebbe The Rapping Rabbi

It had to happen sooner or later and now it has…someone has released a dual format Blue Ray and HD DVD drive…and that someone is LG Electronics. I know this because last week I was at the launch of not one, but two dual format drives, by the major Korean manufacturer, at appropriately cutting edge London venue, 24.
